sometimes I post all vulnerable so the www will applaud me

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Some meanies think I'm

--GET THIS!--


"narcicistic" {which means self-centered, not darling, in case you didn't know} and a crybaby.

bc I only ever blog, facebook, twitter, talk, and think about me and myself and my stuff and my hobbies and my cuteness.

which just makes me want to bawl.

I know you probably have your own stuff going on but I can't care about it right now bc I need you to tell me I'm not self-centered.

What TAMN, you never!

debbie said...

What!!??!! You talk about Linzi, and Ruth, and the Miamaids, and the Grandmas and JJWT all the time. So that can't be just about you.. except it's all about how you expect them to be there for you. What narci-what-ic about that? GEEZ!

Liv said...

i JUST read a real-life post about this today. you are spot on!!

Jaime Lynne said...

I, for one, wish you would share even more about your cuteness... it inspires me.

Lisa said...

Who says being narcicistic is all bad? I get that all the time. I don't know what it means, bc it's a big word, but def not self-centered. I'm sure their just jelling and it really means something awesome. We can be nebffs!!! (narcicistic e-bffs, btw)

Briana said...

It's your blog! You have the right to talk about whatever you darn well please.

Those people have no room to talk.

Melwel said...

I love your self centeredess....it's cute

Mrs.EBG said...

You? Self-centered? Never. Well, maybe just a tad, but that's why we all love you!

daltongirl said...

TAMN. This blog is your journal. Your personal history. Who else are you going to talk about? You are following the profit by blogging about yourself.

Shannon said...

Yeeeah, sorry TAMN, Lynzii was wispering that to everybody last night at bunc/ko while you were telling us all about the bumload of damask you got for your new home{which btw i think is going to be DARLING and i am sooo jealous of you}.

Oh--not to gossipp or anything but I think Lynzii also said something about you being a crybaby; I'm not totally sure tho cuz you were kinda bawling a teency bit at the time {I understand tho, who wouldn't cry about leaving home and living in scarry heathenville??}.

I told Lynzii she was just being hormonal since she did look kinda bloated sitting next to your teency bod.

Melissa Stringham said...

Don't worry TAMN, everyone who blogs about their lives is a bit narcissistic.

Mhana said...

I think of this blog as doing your family history, so future generations can look back and get to know how darling and creative and REAL you were. Of course you write about yourself, IT'S YOUR PERSONELL JOURNAL {that we all happen to read but that does not make it any less personnel!}. If it were Lyndzii's journal (and I bet she doesn't even keep that commandment) it would be all about her. Plus, we believe in being honest and so you shouldn't be all fakey-fake by pretending to think of others to impress us when really you never do. I applaud your sincerity, and isn't narcissus a beautiful flower anyway?

Heidi Ashworth said...

yeah, you and everyone else. You are in very good company. Well, until you move to Washington, anyway . . .

Chelsea said...

HELLO!? Don't they know that the whole POINT of having a blog is being able to talk about yourself?

The Boob Nazi said...

SO not narcissistic. please.

kris and judd said...

HELLO!! Did those mean losers even read about Mo-Matchlor and the time you did the real-life makeover, PLUS all your fabulous givaways? SO not self-centered!

The Bowldens said...

thats dumb. i never would have thought you were self centered! blogging is supposed to be about your and your family and kids. its a way to vent or share about your life. i dont think you are even close to being selfish!

J-Dub said...

You are my life coach. I learn how to navigate my own life by comparing it to yours.

How else am I sposed to get by?

Token Asian Friend said...

Narcissists hold big huge mirrors in front of their faces and talk to themselves. You, on the other hand, use a little tiny compact (and occassionally a rear view mirror) AND you are always on your cell phone talking to others. You are the exact oposite of narcissistic!

Shane, Megan, and CJ said...

Don't worry tamn! You're just at that stage of the pride cycle right now. All you need is a good trial (which we'll all pray you through), and you'll be back to your humble self again.
You'll be in good company, because whoever thinks you're narcissistic is being jujmentle, so their due for a trial, too. I guess I am too for jujjing them.

Wendy Kae said...

So, what if you are self centered. Why do you think we keep coming back again and again. We must relate to how you feel or we'd stay away. The complainers are just jealous that you are sooooooooo fantabulous.

Justin and Ashley Reeves said...

Tamn! I totally think I ran into you at Costco this morning, you had your hair in a fancy updo, wearing a juicy sweatpants, sunglasses indoors and had 2 twins sleeping in the cart. You were buying formula and had your ipod in one ear listening to taylor swift and your cell phone on your other ear -- YAY! i spotted you (or your evil twin) at costco woot woot

Maja said...

The. Nerve. of. Some. People!!!!!!!! Speeking of selfish - its YOUR BLOG and what? They want you to talk about THEM?? Totally don't get it. People who use words like "narcicistic" should have WAY more important things to do than reading your online journal anyway. Bunch of nerdy lame-os!

myimaginaryblog said...

TAMN, first of all, calm down. We're here for you! (What else do we have to do with our time? Right!) Patpatpatpat theretherehoney.

Second of all, of COURSE you have to put yourself first -- how else are you going to keep your bucket all full to take care of those babies (remember the babies? Over there with Queenie and Glamma? No? Here, let's just take those earplugs out for a teensy second? Hear that? That's the twinsies.) So, as I was saying, if you don't keep your own bucket totally, perfectly filled-up (Anthro! Pal! Cruises!) then how are you going to make sure that your sweet twinsies' buckets never ever leak, even a little? Remember: If momma ain't 100% completely happy at all times, ain't nobody 100% completely happy at all times!

Jo said...

You self centered? Whoever said that doesn't know you well. You are a giver. You never think of yourself, just how can you help others. Whether it is your Mia maids or the old spinsters you know. Unbelievable. Just ignore the haters, they are jealous!

Brooke said...

TAMN -- once again you are so accurate it's scary.

and Mhana ... "We believe in being honest??!!!" I wish I had a gold star to give you ... brilliant!

dharvey said...

I don't think that your narci-whatever, because you do the give-aways and you work w/ the Mia Maids.

Its just that your world is so small and so sheltered, that you have nothing else to do except brag about your family and your home decorated in damask and darling vinyl letters. Its a way of trying to make your life seem significant. But I love you anyway. XOXO, from D.

longlostblue said...

TAMN, the scripshurs say not to hide your light under a bushel! You're an inspiration to us all!

Lynnette said...

What- EVER! This BLOG is your journal. It's your family history, for your posteriti. DUH!

The Bradley's said...

Weirdos. Tell them to get a life!!!

Abby said...

TAMN, it's not narcicism if you're telling the truth. Frills, it's just one more way U R so richtus.

Mrs. Mordecai said...

People who use big words like that are just trying to show off.

I need to know, TAMN: how do you pronounce Trig? Is it like that boring math class my husband keeps talking about, or is it like "Trij"?

Jen said...

TAMN! What on earth is blog/facebook/twitter/talking FOR if not to inform us all about YOUR life? All those naysayers are just silly and SELFISH.

clan of the cave hair said...

In "real life" I usually end up unsubscribing from people who make these kinds of posts...but in your case, I'll keep following along, because I just love your wonderful insight into blogger's minds.

jessica said...

if they don't like what you write they don't have to read or comment on it. IT IS YOUR BLOG by the way.

Jillybean said...

If you were self centered you would keep everything to yourself, but instead you share your life with all of the internets.

You are akshully a selfless giver.

The Stones said...

Ew. I hate jell-osy. All those haters can crawl back into their Walmart wholes. They sound like their in need of a pedi!

Public Artist said...

Seriously?

What about all of that support you gave to Ruth? And all of those other Frumpsters? And what about how you always give us updates on Lynzii. I mean, if anyone is narcistic, its her...

Sue said...

Snort.

anna jo said...

isn't that what a blog/facebook/twitter is for???

Ty & Nancy Mackey said...

how could anybody say your narcicistic?! Like all your posts and tweets are technically service and journaling... and you always put all your darlingness and love in there too, their just sad they don't answer to a higher power!

Muum said...

People who call names...'narcicistic' for ex.. usually ARE whatever they are calling YOU! plus they must be totally GELOUS of your natural awesomeness. Two sayings we use around here:

'Humility- my BEST quality' AND

'what! It's not all about ME???'

Elizabeth said...

TAMNIE TAMN TAMN! Don't let those wannabees drag you down! You talk about lots of things besides yourself and your family! Remember when you posted about the Dee-bate? You totally help me work out real world issues, like if I should vote for the gay or not! And most of the times your stories are just giant InSpIrAtIoNs to all of us! Besides, all the greats in this world incounter opposition. If you weren't doing so much good, Satan wouldn't put it in peoples hearts to say such mean things.

GladysIcanbee said...

You can't lift others until you've elevated yourself. Your current "narcissim" is simply a means to help others realize that while they may never be as cute/darling/richus/blessed as you; they can try.

Kat Green said...

I thought narcicistic totally meant darling. So if I said that, which I didn't, it was only because of the darlingness.

Sarah F said...

TAMN, you are seriously, righteously humble mmmk? everyone blogs about themselves, hello!

Casey and Jeannie said...

Don't let the man get you down, TAMN

Gordita said...

Their just jelus.

Stephanie said...

Jealous haterz! U rock my e-world, TAMN!

Angela said...

ok so like first of all, this is your personal and private journal. so of COURSE it's about YOU. but even though it IS about you, you're so righteous, lovely, virtuous and of good report that you have giveaways, which is a way Christ-like thing to do - providing to the needy. I mean that should totally count for a fast offering or something, shouldn't it?? and it's like, you are sharing YOU with the WORLD. it's like your personal mission to beautify the world, right? I mean, seriously. The world would be SUCH a different place without all that is TAMN. Just sayin!

Steph said...

Sign me up! I looooove your blog

annilee said...

I read your adorable blog every day, recommend it to all of my righteous friends, and I am your facebook friend! Does that qualify me? I hope so! If I win, I will for sure announce it as the good new moments in RS :)
